We're thinking you got rid of char_file_u completely.  Do you mean you only
removed it from load_char?

I do have a question, just one.

s/fwrite/fread/, then read my post again.

int load_char(char *name, struct char_file_u * char_element)
  int player_i;

  int find_name(char *name);

  if ((player_i = find_name(name)) >= 0) {
    fseek(player_fl, (long) (player_i * sizeof(struct char_file_u)), SEEK_SET);
    fread(char_element, sizeof(struct char_file_u), 1, player_fl);
    return (player_i);
  } else
    return (-1);

Now then, how in the world do you expect this to work without char_file_u
unless you changed your on disk format and char_data no longer uses
